Uneven roads, potholes, cobblestones or flawless tarmac – with Dynamic Damper Control there is now a chassis for every road and every driving style. In addition to Comfort, the standard setting, the dampers can be set to the Comfort+ mode (not available for BMW M550d xDrive ) for extra comfort thus ensuring minimum disruption on uneven surfaces.
The optional Adaptive Drive function combines Dynamic Damper Control with the active body roll stabilisation Dynamic Drive . Sensors in your BMW permanently monitor vehicle speed, steering-wheel position and the pitch and yaw forces acting on the chassis. Using this data, the system precisely adjusts the stabilisers and the dampers, changing their settings quickly and accurately. This ensures more a precise steering response, shorter braking distances and increased driving comfort.
